Changing The IP Addresses of a Blade Enclosure Managed By OneView

Hello,

I'm planning to change the WHOLE IP addresses settings in a certain Bleade Enclosure inclusing OA, VC(management only) and iLO's., this Blade is being managed by OneView and its on production, so after I change the IP addresses using OnBoard Admin the OneView will lose its connectivity to the blade.

Will I be able to change the IP addresses on OneView so it recognise the new IP address for the blade and keep the configurations or not?

Thanks

Following.  I have to do this will all of my enclosures to move them behind a firewall.  Once that's done I have to change ip address of Oneview console and move it behind the firewall

If you change all of the IPv4 addresses within the management network of a C7000 enclosure, you can do that.  Just make sure to then go to the appliance, select Actions -> Refresh.  This should generate a prompt for you to provide the primary OA address and credentials.  I would strongly suggest you do this during a maintenance window, and during non-peak hours.

 

As for also changing the HPE OneView address, that is going to take time depending on how many resources you have managed/monitored.  You will have to manually refresh each Enclosure and non-BL server hardware so the appliance can prompt you for the updated address.  If you have non-BL server hardware, it would help to know if you added them via their IPv4 address or FQDN.  If IPv4 Address, unfortunately, it will require a bit more than just change iLO IP and refresh":

  1. Power down the server
  2. Unassign the Server Profile (if Managed, skip if Monitored)
  3. Remove the Server Hardware from the console
  4. Change the iLO IPv4 Address to the new value
  5. Add the server hardware back with the IPv4 Address, or preferably the FQDN of the iLO
  6. Re-assign the Server Profile (if Managed)

If you added your non-BL servers via their FQDN, you can omit the 6 steps above.
